Guess the number of requests
I’ve had a mini surge in guesses and with only one day left there still exists an opportunity to win either a £50 Amazon Voucher or cash ? “You’ve got to be in it to win it”
Take care and Stay Safe – Andy, Jim & Linda 👍

Of course the news of the day is that we’ll be moving into Tier 4 as from midnight tonight…..was anyone surprised 🤔🤥?
Tier 4 Information from NKDC

From midnight tonight the whole of Lincolnshire, most of the East Midlands and many more parts of the UK will move into the highest Tier 4 restrictions for coronavirus.
In short this requires us to ‘Stay at Home’ more and mix much less; doing everything possible to protect ourselves, loved ones, our communities and capacity within the NHS.
The main differences between Tier 3 and 4 are these:

Household mixing – none indoors other than support bubbles; outdoors maximum of two people in public spaces
Hospitality closed – aside from take-away, drive-thru and home delivery
Shops – essential shops remain open; non-essential closed other than click-and-collect and delivery
Personal care – hairdressers, barbers, beauticians etc closed
Indoor leisure – gyms, pools etc closed
Indoor entertainment – closed; outdoor attractions may remain open
Work – from home unless unable to do so
Funerals – continue for up to 30 guests
Weddings – reduced to 6 guests and only in exceptional circumstances
Places of worship – open for private prayer and communal worship, but no interaction beyond household group or bubble.

There is a lot more detail at and we will be updating the Council website and social media channels regularly.
Given the work of the past few months, the Council is well-placed – through our own initiative and in partnership across the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum – to respond to the challenge that this change will bring, and we will inevitably be looking to cascade new support mechanisms for affected businesses and our most clinically vulnerable residents.
Please remember, around 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it.
You can protect yourself and others by following Hands. Face. Space.
